    Just thought I'd point out the latest two Hornblower adventures (Loyalty and Duty) will be available on DVD from October 03. They are available individually or in a new Boxset.

    I don't suppose anyone happens to know if they are going to make anymore?

    I would expect there'd be more to come considering the number of Sharpe adventures they dramatised - although admittedly several Hornblower novels comprise in each TV version.

    I personally would love to see some more Sharpe films made - the newest books that Cornwell has written are among his best so far. Unlikely I suppose though since there can only be difficulties reforming the cast especially as Sean Bean must be commanding enormous salaries elsewhere!

    Last I heard he was doing theatre in London - with Samantha Bond I think.

    Maybe they could do some of his earlier escapades in India and leading up to Sharpe’s Rifels. So they could use a younger actor for the role.
    I hope they get round to filming the Grail Quest by Bernard Cornwell.
